7 World’s Continents Photo Challenge - Asian Sunday week #50 - winner announcement!

@rinawonderlands Asian Sunday entry:

This is one of a beautiful sunrise i had when i was in Gili Trawangan island, a small island near Lombok. No cars, no bike is allowed in this island. But unfortunately we can't go visit the island for a while now, since the earthquake hit Lombok last month. Many building were damaged, and all the people were evacuated from the island for their safety.

Picturesque white chapel and panoramic view of the town of Skalica, Slovakia. Home to some 15,000 people, Skalica is located very close to the Czech-Slovak border in the Trnava Region of Slovakia. It is a beautiful historic town with many impressive churches and old buildings.



That looks awesome! Thank you for sharing.

The beautiful shoreline on the West Coast of Scotland is covered in amazing rock formations. These ones are orange and yellow, creating their amazing own landscape, overlooking the outer islands in the distance. The moody atmosphere was an added bonus!


Nice shot @vtravels - the rocks reminds me orange stripes of marble which I saw near the Svartisen glacier here in Norway, maybe they have some similar geological source... who knows... Good luck with the contest!


Thank you so much! I loved the orange marble!!


I love the colors in this. The mood is perfect. Great shot.


Thank you, the colours were just amazing I want to go back!


Thank you so much for your wonderful entry. Kindly stay tuned for the winner announcement coming later on.


Thank you !

Tenerife (Spain)
Sunset over small resort Puerto de Santiago on Tenerife, which is the largest and most populated island of the seven Canary Islands. Nice place close to the beach called ´playa de los gigantes´ where you can see big rocks around.



You caught that sun just in time. That sure takes some patience!

The view is just splendid!
The sun is slowly setting down behind the hills and the sky turns into fire.
Spain is the a very good place to relax under the warm weather while sipping on a cold beer as you are witnessing Nature's beauty!

Location: Artasona, Spain.


Truly spectacular image. Well done!


Thank you :)


There are many beautiful lakes near Munich. One of them is the Ammersee I regularly spend my time to find peace. he offers every time every season new motives for taking pictures. a long-term exposure emphasizes the tranquility that the lake radiates.


So calm! Thank you so much for your entry.

Photo taken near Perast Town in Montenegro.
As always I'm lucky if goes about couds and light during the sunset :).
I've spend in Montenegro around two weeks and one of mine day trip's goal was to travel arund "Boka Kotorska". This is the place which looks like Norway's Fjord. What you see on this photo it isn't a lake. It's Adriatic sea in the bay, hidden between the mountains. I saw many cruiserswas traveling this "path" and they stopped in Kotor city - for as I assume - one or two days tour.

This small cgurch is named "Our Lady Of The Rocks" and is located on the very small island Ostrovo. You can get in there on the boat from Perast .73a.jpg


Love that reflection of the sky in the water. Thank you so much for your entry and have a great day. Tomas

Scottish weather is often very mixed and creates magical moments like this when just for few minutes sunshine broke through heavy clouds and rain and the rainbow appeared on the other side of Loch Etive in Glen Etive, Scotland

What an epic image catching a double rain-bow. Well done.


What an epic image catching a double rain-bow. Well done.

Here is a blue hour shot of the cathedral in Girona, Spain. Most people will recognize this as the Great Sept of Baelor from King's Landing in Game of Thrones.



Love that pic! Well done.

Santorini, also called Thira, is a Greek island located in the Aegean Sea. It was destroyed by a volcanic eruption long ago and this has shaped its rugged landscape with beaches composed of black, red and white lava pebbles. The white cube-shaped houses of its 2 main cities, Fira and Oia, are hung on cliffs overlooking a caldera. Postcard pictures everywhere you look!

I love that place! Thank you so much for sharing your image. Tomas

North of Germany

With a huge excitment to participate more, I had to scavenge my external hard drive in search for the photos my brother and I had taken in Germany way back in 2012, when we travelled Europe by train. On this shot all we could think was: Is this thing real? Isn't it a Windows screen?

Click image to enlarge


If you have not written it is Germany I would go for my homeland:)


It's near! I have a lot of photos from north of Europe, I'll start posting them. Who know if I don't have a photo of your front door haha

The best photo contest ever

It's always a pleasure to share your content on twitter Tomas. Keep up the great work. Stephen

The Leaning Tower has made Pisa famous all over the world. But the city offers many other interesting things to see worth. Pisa cathedral that you can see on the picture, also known as Duomo di Pisa, is a medieval Roman Catholic cathedral dedicated to the Assumption of the Virgin Mary, in the Piazza dei Miracoli in Pisa, Italy. I recommend everyone to visit Pisa at least once and maybe taking one of those stereotypical tourist photo :p


This is awesome.

Caldeirão do Corvo
On the 17 km² small island Flores live 300 inhabitants. In the middle of the island you can watch this beautiful crater, which is nowadays used by farmers.

Dresden Cathedral

While the Frauenkirche ("womens church") is the most known religious building in Dresden, Dresden Cathedral also features impressive architecture that I captured on a long exposure during my photographic evening walk around the city.

15s; 18mm; f/22.0; ISO 100

I have also posted this photo on my blog.


I am impresse. So nice pic bro.


I love those light trails from the headlights. Awesome job.


Obersee, Berchtesgarden - Germany
Obersee is a lake closed to the Königssee in Berchtesgarden. The water is probably the most clean I've ever seen in my life. It's crystal clear and super refreshing to jump into in summer time :)


Autumnal forest in Austria

This is one of my favourite places near my hometown. It's "Rodltal" in Gramastetten, a river in a really beautiful forest with big stones and lots of nature power. I took this photo by putting the camera on one of the stones (slippery when wet :-P ) as I didn't take a tripod, and used long time exposure to get the water soft like this.

Everyone should know this contest so that i shared it on twitter

The upper Belvedere palace in Vienna. It used to be the residence of royalties like Prince Eugene of Savoy. It is now turned into a museum holding the world's largest collection of Gustav Klimt's painting.


Photo below is from Iceland. I was traveling there in February 2017. It was a great trip and Iceland soon became my favorite country (along with my Slovenia) in Europe, at least from photography perspective. It offers so many great motives and this time is a typical Icelandic horse, with snowy mountain in the background. So Icelandic…

— Blood Is Thicker Than Water —
ˋIndian Summer´ in Austria a lifetime or few years ago :)
This was before my awakening to many horrors in my life - and yet it almost looks as if I am already contemplating to drown myself in the ˋlake of blood´ to my feet... ha...! ~ But I have truly not experienced myself as unhappy in this moment & so this impression remains a quite nice one to me: displaying the most magnificent wildly romantic nature of the ˋForest Quarter´ (- of Lower Austria -) magnificently...! The deep reflection of the ˋred wood´ in the water has always thrilled me ~ especially when set in such brilliant contrast to the reed plus the bluish plank that I am standing on...! Admits this slight moor landscape that we have here :)

To sink into the stars

Night photography. Shot near remains of old pier at Sventoji, Lithuania with very wide angle lens and of course on a long exposure.
Simply amazing thing to see the Milky Way accompanied by the soundtrack of the sea waves nearby.
Everybody must to find such an opportunity at least once in their life :)

Enjoy it!

In the tranquility of Bruges

Walking around the Bruges feels magical! It offers beautiful architecture, tasty food and so many canal rides. Here is one of the scenes I have captured while exploring the streets. The view of the statue of the Saint Joannes Nepomucenus. The ambience, the light, the Catholic Chuch in the background made this view not to be missed!

I have also shared the image in my blog!

Photo of La Pedrera (also known as Casa Milà). It is one of the most famous buildings designed by Antoni Gaudí (1852-1926). The genius Catalonian architect, with very unusual buildings. La Pedrera is in Passeig de Gràcia, one of the most prestigious avenues of Barcelona. This building is one of jewels of the Catalonian modernism and its construction finished in 1912.
I consider that the sepia tone fits quite well to this image.

Sir, your post has been very nice. Hope you'll get a better post like this.

The Magdeburg Water Bridge

is navigable aqueduct in central Germany, located near Magdeburg. It’s not often that you’ll find a large navigable water way that is an aqueduct that is strong enough to handle commercial transportation, but that’s exactly what the Magdeburg Water Bridge does. This photo is shared on my blog


Is this your image? This picture is found on multiple sites online. Some of the other photos shared on your blog have been found other places as well.
